Vision Meeting at Graham

Thanks to those who came out to Graham last night to in series of meetings aimed at clarifying a vision for this school system. The hopes and dreams that you talked about are achievable, and to hear you articulate them was very moving.

The next public meeting is Monday night at Houston, beginning at 6:00PM. If you had a conflict with the event when it was help at your own school, I hope you will take the opportunity to come that night and give your input.

College Day Tuesday at THS

Talladega High School’s annual College Day will be held Tuesday at 1:30 P. M. in the gymnasium. Representatives from colleges around the state will be in attendance. Students in grades 11 and 12 will be allowed to attend the program. Parents of these students are urged to participate, according to guidance counselor Janice M. Shephard.

“We have always had strong participation from colleges and students in the past. We are hoping a great number of parents can participate,” Shephard said.

“The main focus of the day will be to get information directly to students and parents concerning colleges, universities, military and employment opportunities. Such information will include the application process, financial aid and scholarships. Students will be given information on how to enlist in the military and what is available in the area of employment,” she said.

“We feel that it is important to talk with parents as well as students. In some cases the information is not reaching the parents,” according to Shephard “We like to cover scholarship information early before the deadline dates,” Shephard said. Some of the colleges already confirmed to participate include the University of Alabama, Alabama State University, Alabama A& M University, Tuskegee University, University of Montevallo, University of North Alabama, Jacksonville State University, Central Alabama Community College, Southern Union Community College, University of South Alabama, University of West Alabama, Faulkner University, Auburn University at Montgomery, Troy State University, Jefferson State Community College, Talladega College, Berea College and many others.

Various branches of the Armed Services will also be present, as well as, a representative of the State Employment Office.

Make plans to attend this important day!

Dual Enrollment Opportunity for THS

"Dual enrollment" is a program which allows high school students to take a college course and have it count both towards high school graduation and college credit hours. To be eligible to take dual enrollment courses through a college, university, or junior college, a student must:
  • Be in at least the 10th grade
  • Have a "B" average

The process wold begin by the student seeing his/her counselor at THS to pick up an application. The counselor is also equiped to talk with the student and answer questions. An admission test called "COMPASS" is required. The Talladega branch of Central Alabama Community College administers this test twice each week. If a student has taken the ACT and has scored 20 or better in English, mathematics, and reading, the student is exempt from taking COMPASS.

Class schedules for the spring semester for Central Alabama Community College will be available in November. The schedules can be accessed from the CACC website at http://www.cacc.edu/.

When I grow up...

What will the world be like when our children grow up? Here are some ideas...


THS Band Rated "Superior"

The THS Band received Superior ratings from the entire panel of judges at the Mid-South Marching Band Festival this past Saturday at Gadsden City High School. The band received superior trophies for the Dega Darlins Color Guard, percussion section, drum major, and for the entire band. The THS Band also won the "Bob Rush Memorial Award" for receiving straight superior ratings from the entire panel.
Additionally, the Dega Darlins Color Guard received first place honors in our class and tied for the highest score of the day (96), regardless of class, with Grissom High School.
